Wedding is the one day in every girl’s life when she wishes to look perfect (not like we’re suggesting that the rest of the days do not have this welcome option). But, there’s something special about weddings, considering the fact that Indian weddings are a Pandora of celebration, festivity and magnificence. No wonder they weigh down the bride with a lot of pressure to look good, charming and beautiful. Many times, one looks at the bride and wonders, what exactly went wrong with the makeup. People take the liberty of applying too much foundation, which looks too pan-cakey, too powdery, and too ghostly. And then there’s the whole deal with the pictures. You’ve got to be snapped a million times and more often than not, the makeup turns them out horrendous. Ouch!
So if you are yet to be married, thank your lucky stars, for we are about to introduce you to the best foundations of our times, that will make you look like the perfect princess bride, besides helping you appear worth a million bucks in all your big day pictures!
